As a POP collector since 2011, I have seen loads of amazing figures produced and this past year was no exception. I think this year I bought more POPS than I ever have before. LOL, at San Diego Comic Con I spent about $5oo at the Funko booth! For fun I wanted to share what I thought were the stand out figures of the year. These are the ones that I just had to add to my collection. Let’s have a look at my 10 favourite POPS of 2015!
I have something that I just have to share with you! Ok, so you all know of my love for POP vinyl figures, right? I have been doing reviews of them for years and while I have unboxed a lot of them, it was always hard to display them. Well, I changed all that by buying a glass case and some acrylic risers. Now, I have the proper way to display Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Snow White, Cinderella, Peter Pan and the rest. So, I thought I would make a mega unboxing video, LOL. I open up and display 80 Disney POP vinyl figures in this video, watch it below and enjoy.
Time for another Tanya Tate review. You all know that I collect POP vinyl figures. I have been reviewing them for years. But even more than the general releases, I am a huge fan of the flocked variants. Nothing catches my attention more than seeing something small and fuzzy. LOL.
Well, today I am going to be looking at a flocked figure and a welcome addition to my collection. From the incredibly popular Disney movie Frozen, it’s the Flocked Olaf POP vinyl figure. This was a 2014 New York Comic Con Toy Tokyo exclusive. I’ll be honest, I didn’t even know this was coming out. So, it was a pleasant surprise for me when I was made aware of it. Let’s take a look at Mr. Olaf.
I have a new video review that I wanted to share with you! This time I will be unboxing the Doctor Who Companions action figure box set from Underground Toys. This set is very special to me and I talk a little bit about why in the video. So, let’s take a look at my video review.
Have you seen my latest Funko POP! vinyl figure review? In this one I take a look at the Gemini Collectibles exclusive Hong Kong Phooey figure in Black Robes. I talked about this POP! before, about how cool I thought it was going to be. Well, I ordered one and now, I’ll take this exclusive vinyl figure out of the box and share it with you. Want to have a look? The video review of my Hong Kong Phooey Funko POP! is posted below.
Today I am going to be taking a look at a cool exclusive. It’s John Cena with Green Hat and Wristbands. This one is a WWE Exclusive. I got mine when I went to a RAW show. As you may already know, the John Cena figure was originally released with Blue accents. But let’s have a look at the exclusive, shall we?
This year during San Diego Comic Con I had the opportunity to attend Funko’s annual party, Fundays. It’s a celebration that the cool people of Funko put together for industry and fans.
I invited Phil from the Facebook group Poppin Off About Funko and HollywoodGoneGeek.com to sit in with me and recap the Fundays event. We’ll talk about all the exciting games and giveaways that took place as well as some of the exclusives that were found there including the magical Mystery Box. Have a look below:
Hey Funko fans! It's Phil from Poppin' Off About Funko's Facebook Group. Hollywood Gone Geek asked me to get a list together of my favorite Funko SDCC scores. So, here is my list...
We have seen Funko reveal week after week their upcoming exclusives for San Diego Comic Con. We were very excited to see glam shots of all these wonderful exclusives Funko would be selling at their famous booth at SDCC. There were also other Exclusives I was excited about from Fugitive, Crazy Cay Collectibles, Toy Tokyo & POP! Asia.
Well, after battling the Funko booth and a couple others at Comic Con. I had a lot of these gems in hand. Here are my favorites after seeing these exclusives in person.
Wampa-Luke 2-Pack from Star Wars
This set is amazing! The super-sized Wampa with his cut off arm by Luke’s lightsaber is great! Luke had some new detail as well with some battle scar blood. This is a must have for any Star Wars fan! Funko used the force with this and did a really cool job of bringing the Hoth scene to the vinyl-toy world.
Huckleberry Hound from Hanna Barbera
Funko first revealed this exclusive with the original release artwork. As it turned out the Comic Con exclusive was the dark blue variant. The Hound is a limited edition of only 480 pieces. So if you have one of these in your collection, it's a totally good thing. I was really excited to pick up this Hanna-Barbera Pup! There were also 6 colored variants at Funko’s FunDays that were a limited edition of only 24 each (those were not for sale, the FunDays variants are priceless).
Toy Tokyo Gold Batmobile
Okay, so technically my next pick was not revealed by Funko, the Gold Batmobile was a Toy Tokyo exclusive. It's a limited edition of only 300 pieces. The Gold Batmobile comes with a red Batman Hero Pop. These were very limited at Comic Con as they sold out within the first 45 minutes each day. Batman looks really pimped-out in his gold ride! This was the ultimate score for me, as I’m a huge Batman fan!
Toy Tokyo Antique Skeletor Hikari
Yes, another Toy Tokyo Exclusive made my favorite list! What can I say, Toy Tokyo also revealed some really amazing pieces. This Hikari figure has an incredible silver/black/gold paint job. These Hikari figures are handmade and crafted by a wonderful company called MindStyle. This figure measures about 6 inches tall and this particular piece is a limited edition of only 300 pieces.
Beat Up Jesse Pinkman from Breaking Bad
I’m a fan of the award winning show Breaking Bad. I thought this beat-up Jesse was a great variant. I actually like this Comic Con exclusive better than the original release of Jesse. Damn, Tuco really did a job on this guy! This figure is an limited-edition of 2500 pieces.
Fugitive White Lantern Batman
Ok, so this next favorite was not even at SDCC, but I’m going to throw him in there for a couple of reasons. 1, he’s VERY cool and 2, he was a part of a SDCC Fugitive Exclusive 7-pack that I got right after Comic Con. This White Lantern Batman was the Mystery figure in the 7-pack! Hopefully we see a glow-in -the -dark version next.
Pop! Asia Hopping Ghost Series
These were at the MindStyle booth at SDCC. These creepy Gold exclusives are too cool! There are 4 figures in the set… Prime Minister, The Sheriff, Little Prince & The Judge. Funko & MidStyle teamed up on this project as well. All I can say is… the paint application on these vinyls are wonderful! Flawless! I’m happy to add these guys to my collection.
Sten Lee SDCC Version
I have never been a fan of the Stan Lee Pop! figures until I saw this one. Finally, a SDCC version of Stan the man! This Stan Exclusive was at the Crazy Cat Collectibles booth for $25. I couldn't pass him up!
I hope you guys got to score some SDCC Funko Exclusives of your own.
Until next year guys….

Today I will be reviewing a cool collectible from my friends at Full Moon Entertainment! Ah, do you love the Puppet Master series? Those horror movies are fun to watch and are prone to leave you with some frightmares, LOL. Well, one of the main puppets was Blade. He was seen in the entire series and now we have a bobblehead of him available! Let’s take a look at him, shall we?
I am back again with another Funko POP! vinyl review! In this video I’ll be taking a look at a character that is near and dear to my heart. From Disney series 5 is Mary Poppins. I love it.
